    The forum will be officially opened by Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and attended by the ministers of Education, Fernando Haddad, and Culture, Gilberto Gil, as well as the mayor of Nova Iguaçu, Lindenberg Farias, and members of the WEF international council. A March for Education as a Right and for Peace will also be part of the opening ceremonies.

      And Brazil…..
      …should finally listen carefully !!!!

      Because so far your schooling education has been less than good and not all youths were able to receive education from your previous/actual governments !!!!

      Your government and politicians should care more about the well being of the whole brazilian society, and care less for their impunity through corruption and only their own well being !
